While Kelly Dodd had a shaky start on Real Housewives of Orange County, she provided fans with plenty of moments that motivated us to root for her. However, it’s just tough to do that lately with all of her coronavirus-related commentary. She said that coronavirus is God’s way of thinning the herd. She also “joked” that people are going to die anyway. And then there was that gathering with her RHOC co-stars Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. They wore face masks, one that ironically said “6 feet apart.” However, they got in such close proximity to each other for some selfies. They did not seem to be taking the shelter in place order seriously. At all.
Additionally, Kelly has been traveling back and forth from California to New York City, where her fiance Rick Leventhal lives. As an outsider, it’s hard not to have opinions about Kelly’s comments and behavior in relation to the coronavirus. Now, she has even more to say.
Some of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members caused some controversy when they posted photos hanging out during the coronavirus pandemic in the midst of a stay-at-home order in California. Yes, they wore face masks, covering their mouths and noses. Yes, they seemingly had less than ten people with them. But, nevertheless, a lot of people were outraged when they reunited and took a selfie, mere inches from each other’s faces.
This was probably the one time Gina Kirschenheiter was actually happy to be excluded. Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Emily Simpson were present for the coronavirus gathering. Even
recently fired Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge commented with a face palm emoji. She’s not the only one throwing some shade though.
Bitter, party of two. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge have been talking a lot of trash since they
got fired “left” Real Housewives of Orange County. I can’t tell if they’re just truly slamming the door behind them or if they’re just trying to ignite a strong enough feud with the actual cast members that they’ll get asked back on the show. Most likely, it’s the second one.
Vicki never liked Braunwyn Windham-Burke. However, Tamra didn’t mind making out with her. Now, Tamra is dissing her supposed “friend” with some encouragement from her
ally BFF Vicki. They also took some cheap shots at Emily Simpson, because why not hate on the well-spoken lawyer who actually seems like a nice person?
Grab your oranges because The Real Housewives of Orange County are in some seriously hot water. On Monday (May 4), Kelly Dodd took to social media to share a picture of herself hanging out with Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke…in the middle of the global coronavirus pandemic.
Needless to say, fans didn’t take to0 kindly to the RHOC stars utter disregard for social distancing directives in a time when most everyone around the country is doing their best to stay home for the sake of public health, and outrage spread faster than you can scream “I have never been with multiple partners in my life!”
How does that old adage go? “You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.” What about “absence makes the heart grow fonder”? But, what about the people that never left? Tamra Judge got the boot from Real Housewives of Orange County ahead of filming for Season 15.
Instead of taking some time to regroup and figure out a new normal away from the spotlight, she’s had a lot to say, especially about RHOC. Recently, she shared some casting opinions. And, yes, of course, she thinks she was a part of the show’s “perfect cast.” No one is surprised by that, but it may be a little bit shocking to find out who else she named.
No love lost here. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd doesn’t seem sad that two of the tres amigas are no longer filming. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge will not return to the franchise when filming resumes.
This has left many fans wondering how Kelly will handle having Shannon Beador, aka the last amiga, around. And I think it’s fair to say Kelly doesn’t seem the least bit worried.
In the cast shakeup heard around the world–OK–in Housewife Land–the departures of OG Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County were recently announced. After Vicki’s demotion to Friend of last season, her exit was not a total shock. Tamra’s departure was a little more surprising. Housewife OG’s and long-time cast members are probably shaking in their Louboutins–if they are smart and their reality egos allow for reflections on their Housewife status.
Vicki went out relatively classy–thanking her fans for their support. Tamra took her leave when she was only offered three episodes to wrap up her storyline. Then she appeared to unfollow her former co-stars on Instagram. Who could blame her? Being shown the door has to sting. If all that wasn’t enough, both Vicki and Tamra have more fallout to deal with from their lives as former Housewives–besides tarnished reputations, that is.
Fans are wondering who will join Real Housewives of Orange County after the news broke that Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are done with the show. Since nothing else has been announced, it’s safe to assume that Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson, aand Braunwyn Windham-Burke will be back for Season 15. Nevertheless, it’s unclear if they’ll be full-time or if they’ll get demoted to a part-time role, like Vicki was for Season 14.
Most likely, nothing will be “officially” confirmed until Season 15 has finished filming and the network is gearing up to promote the show, but there is one name floating around about a possible new cast member.
